Better M13

click image for full size

On a whim, I shot up to the local observing spot tonight for some more astrophotographjy sessions. I really needed to stay home and work on a presentation for an executive meeting next week but needed to get out and relax a bit. I took photos of several objects, but wanted to revisit M13 again.

The image below was the best of the series of sets of photos that I took of the giant globular. This came out much better than my last few attempts.
